Standards Shape Education Quality Management

When a school or college applies for Organisational Membership, we require a submission which proves a minimal ability to adhere to the Centre’s Quality Standards. 

Generally, whether standards are set by peers or by government officials or elected representatives of a system (which applies to a given country, state or region), standards exist to provide accountability, and ultimately improve academic quality where otherwise it may be lacking.

The Centre's quality standards are outlined in a simple framework called the Framework for Excellence.

Provide Supporting Evidence – A Valuable Step in Your Quality Control Processes

An application for membership must be supported by evidence to a minimum threshold.  By requiring a robust application we can be confident in the standards of our members.

This ensures:

  • school success
  • student achievement
  • the Centre's credentials
  • retained quality across the member network

During the evidence gathering stage and preparing the submission, you might identify potential gaps in the submission. Please contact us if you have questions regarding this step as we can help, furthermore we can sometimes make suggestions on alternative evidence you may have.

To assist, suggested types of evidence are included on the Self-Assessment Compliance template.

When ready to apply, you may submit evidence online or you can email your submission to the Centre.

Registration and Approval Fees

We have always kept our fees to the minimum possible. We believe in equity in global education even given vast differences in world economies. By providing opportunities for institutions from less economically advantaged nations to join the Centre, then we're taking a critical step toward inclusive education.
